If I were a guessing man, I'd guess that you had your amp hooked up in a bridged configuration. And also that you connected your two speakers in parallel (plus to plus and minus to minus). And if I were to further guess, I'd guess that you have a blown amp now because of what I mentioned above. Sounds like you need to spend some quality time with your favorite electronic repair shop. Good luck.

What main fuses? Fuses in the car electrical system? If so, your amp is too powerful to run through the cars electrical system, you should get a heavy guage wore ran straight from the battery, with its own dedicated fuse placed in-line, ad close to the battery as possible. Wait, is this a bass guitar combo??? Open it up, if there's wax coming from the power supply, thats prolly the culprit. Check for any obviously blown resistors or any short circuits. But most likely, its not gonna be user-servicable.

SOURCE: AMp keeps blowing fuses
When any amp blows fuses, this indicates that something is drawing too much current. The most common cause are components in the output stage and driver stages that have become defective.
On the amp that is blowing the fuse with the volume being turned up, this means that the output stage is partially working. The short or over-draw of current must be in the output stage, or what is loading it. It is possible in this case that a crossover in a speaker unit is defective, and is drawing too much current. I have seen this with especially sub-woofer crossovers, and the driver itself. Subs pull a lot of current because of the amount of drive power required to have very strong bass sounds. Other than that, this still does not rule out the possibility of the problem being defective components in the amplifier.
